Lauren Conrad goes spooky with The Edit



It’s Getting Scary Close

That’s right, Lauren Conrad and her crew of lovely ladies continue to gear up for Halloween in big and little ways with The Edit today, showing off their spookiest and most delightful creations that can make one’s Halloween more fun and more exciting.

Lauren starts off the edit as always with Do-It-Yourself mini-mummies from Oh Happy Day that turns a few wooden mannequins into a frightful and delightful decoration that’s thanks to guaze or cheesecloth draped over the figures, and one can seek and buy out these adorable wooden mannequins over at IKEA.

Another scary Do-It-Yourself project Lauren dives into are mini monster eyeball donuts by Sugar & Cloth that are immediately spooky, and yet they are delicious because it’s starts off with powdered mini-donuts, sour gummy rings, peanut butter M&M’s, and royal icing if one wants all the ingredients stuck together as one.

Now as one gets together their spooky creations for Halloween in just 12 days, one can cozy up in Lauren’s LC Lauren Conrad Eyelash Open-Front Cardigan, because it can become downright scary out there or inside your home as you conquer errands and such, so you need style and comfort for ease in doing it all.

Now as everybody gets ready for Halloween at this point, The Edit this week also includes Jouer Cosmetics Essential High Coverage Liquid Concealer, Steve Madden Brinkley Over The Knee Stretch Boots, Chelsea King Nude Blush Crushed Velvet Scrunchie to keep one’s hair in a bun that complement their Halloween costume, and the Universal Thread Jumpsuit that may be a Halloween costume’s canvas.

Beauty Down In The Country

Maren Morris and Little Big Town stunned the CMT “Artist of the Year” red carpet on Wednesday evening in Nashville, Tennessee.

Little Big Town had the most glamour to offer, with Kimberly Schlapman wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan gown, while Karen Fairchild wore Le Vian diamond rings.

Maria Lucia Hohan has become the starlet’s go-to designer, gracing Hollywood A-listers at major award shows, premieres and red carpet events.

Known for her ethereal, elaborately draped gowns and flirty cocktail dresses, Maria Lucia Hohan’s signature aesthetic lies in her delicate pastel hues and colors on variations of silk textures, sheer mousseline, sand washed satin, creamy velvet and crisp taffeta.

Self-describing her collections as chic but girly, Maria’s pieces are created to enhance the feminine silhouette and make a woman feel radiant and fabulous.

Considered one of the oldest jewelers in the world today, Le Vian’s glittered archive tells the story of a family’s steadfast integrity and love of gemstones and quality.

Capturing the eyes of ancient royalty and the most famous celebrities on today’s red carpet, Le Vian’s designs are regarded as works of art.

Artisans craft rare natural decorative color diamonds including Pink Orchid Diamonds, Sunny Yellow Diamonds, Blackberry Diamonds, Vanilla Diamonds and Chocolate Diamonds into innovative designs, combining colors of gems and flavors of gold with intricate detailing and a passion from days gone by.

Master gem cutters then utilize Le Vian’s proprietary and innovative cuts to brilliantly reveal the exceptional beauty of each gem.

Maren Morris strutted the CMT “Artist Of The Year” red carpet in the utmost beautiful solo act possible, wearing Borgioni double finger diamond rings.

Created by mother-daughter duo Rhonda and Tiffany Bartolacci, Borgioni Private Collection is a brand that fuses bohemian vintage with medieval rock-n-roll.

Named after the family matriarch, Emily Rose Borgioni Bartolacci, and inspired by the vintage pieces she left behind, their collection was born from the desire to redesign & wear their family heirlooms.

Key pieces include their signature 18k gold handcuffs, bejeweled skulls, diamond spikes, and nature-inspired pieces.

Borgioni is expressive, exotic and crafted for every day wearability.

Lauren Conrad’s Halloween costume goes to ‘The Birds’ with Melanie Daniels



They’re On It Like A Hawk

Lauren Conrad drew the curtains on the big reveal today of her Halloween costume for 2018, Lauren Conrad looks to the original suspenseful filmmaker, who is the one and only Alfred Hitchcock, and his gripping 1963 film, “The Birds”, finding Melanie Daniels who had attracted these frightening black flyers when arriving in town.

Now it’s not only Lauren who’s involved in all the action, it’s little one-year-old Liam James Tell too that joins his mother in “The Birds” extravaganza, by dressing up as one of those little birds who go after Melanie, and the town Melanie settles in.

Lauren’s take on Melanie Daniels is conceived of a coordinating retro green dress and jacket from Etsy, fake birds on the left side of Lauren’s jacket, black high heels, and a red eyeliner or lip liner pencil Lauren uses to complete her lips for Melanie Daniels.

Little Liam James Tell’s costume of those terrifying birds is made up of a black onesie, a black vegan boa that’s super soft and don’t have any feathers that can easily poke your little ones, yellow tights or leggings, and sneakers which surely can match your little one’s birdy costume.

Lauren Conrad’s trick to keeping her hair in a bun is to add a little spritz of dry shampoo before piling up the hair in the proper look it needs to be, and a few simple instructions can make the Melanie Daniels costume possible on you as well for Halloween.

Lauren Conrad’s DIY Jack O’ Lantern pails



Fetch Us Some Candy

Halloween, and trick-or-treating time are 2 weeks from today, we’re busy enough trying to get our costume and make-up together, but Lauren Conrad’s doing makeup in another way for Halloween, Lauren today sans the decades-old plastic Jack O’ Lantern pail for decorated tin bucket trick-or-treat pails.

Everyone remembers those 1,2,3 Jack O’ Lantern pails in a pinch sold at any ole drug store (CVS still sells them today), and even McDonald’s had their own when you got a Happy Meal, Lauren instead makes her own for little Liam making 3 painted pails of a mummy, a skull and crossbones, and the Jack O’ Lantern too.

Let’s start off easy so we don’t throw off those devoted plastic Jack O’ Lantern pail lovers, Lauren reproduces the one and only Jack O’ Lantern known on many door steps across the country by painting her own to a simple tin pail, orange, off-white, and black paint are all that’s needed with simple tools that reimage the Jack O’ Lantern on the trick-or-treating route.

Now if you need to breakaway from dear ole Jack O’ Lantern, Lauren’s first alternative to Jack O’ Lantern is painting a skull and crossbones, paint the pail in nothing but black twice, then go on and sketch out the eyes, nose, the head, and crossbones behind the head to make your skull and crossbones tin.

Jack O’ Lantern’s next match in the DIY trick-or-treat pails comes from the mummy, canvased off-white accompanied by black sketched lines through the pail, but first paint a small black triangle at the center of your pail so your white and black with orange traced eyes can be inserted.

Lauren Conrad’s guide to total tonal



Become One Up & Down

Take yourself back to that very moment where after you’ve bought your first iPhone, or your first Macbook Pro a decade ago, you come to the realization that you no longer want to cross between Apple and non-Apple, you just buy Apple only, that’s what Lauren Conrad today seek out in styling head-to-toe tonal looks, the risk of establishing a monochromatic look this fall.

Inspiration is seeked by jewel tone hues from Lauren’s LC Lauren Conrad collection, it’s that one accessory, jewelry, or article of clothing that inspires you to change up your entire look from top to bottom.

The first look Lauren and company are in search of are deep berry hues coming in cozy sweaters from LC Kohl’s, it is that sweater inspiring the rich bright colors of fall that bring on LC’s Viola Backpack coming in wine colored Cabernet achieving the dream.

Look number two continues the monochromic marathon that leaves us blue in the face, but we’re not ill about a poncho or oversized blanket scarf in chambray or slate, add in a nice blue handbag from LC Lauren Conrad herself to make these blues worth getting very cheerful about.

And last, but not least, we go to the best color more likely in the winter, but it works in fall too, it is pink, or blush as a matter of fact, blush finds itself on on a plaid scarf, but blush does itself real justice if it’s on a chic circle bag.

Lauren Conrad stresses why adopting a pet is important


Courtesy: Lauren Conrad Instagram

And They Called It Puppy Love

Lauren Conrad loves her adorable dogs who are Fitz and Chloe, those two were dogs that Lauren rescue by adopting them at a pet shelter, so Lauren passes along the love for her puppies with today’s Tuesday Ten on why to rescue a pet.

The life of a sheltered puppy are filled with mixed emotions, it’s shocking, sad, scary, and ends with euthanization, so that’s the first reason why adopting a pet is better than buying one at a pet store, you save a life simply by adopting a pet.

Rescue pets deliver nothing but unconditional love day in and day out because of the new lease on life you gave that pet, you also save money by adopting a pet in so many way as you avoid a pet store as well as a checklist of vaccinations, and adopting decreases the power of puppy mills.

Pets end up in shelters for many reasons, and it’s not entirely because they were bad pets, it mainly through no fault of their own either stray or owner’s own reasons, one can meet wonderful people who also have rescued pets leading to great benefits, and pets are good for one’s optimal health.

Nobody likes to euthanize pets just to make room, that’s why it’s important to adopt in large numbers because it’s a more optimistic alternative to make room at shelters for other pets coming in, you also have the option of adopting a puppy or an older dog depending on your capacity, and no rescue dog is alike, they’re very special in their own way.
